As the Founder of Surala Consultng and with over 10 years of fundraising experience in the arts, Sara is available to teach classes/courses related to fundraising to small and large groups. Past classes taught include: Fundraising 101, Grant Writing, Budgets & Strategies, Making the Ask, and Individual Giving. Classes are an affordable way to teach basic skills and principles of fundraising in a focussed yet non-competitive learning environment.

Individual Giving 101

With so few grants available to the arts, donations from individuals are what it’s all about. This workshop offers an overview of fundraising from solicitation letters to benefits to cultivation events to help artists and managers develop a network of supporters. Participants will learn to develop their own donor strategies and walk away with a multi-pronged plan to raising money from individuals.

Project Budgets & Strategies

Beginning with an overview of basic budgeting principles, we’ll discuss how your budget can inform your project’s timeline and the steps along the way. This workshop will use participants’ projects as models for learning.
